Will Bonanza Fly Bait harm white tail deer?
We scatter corn on the ground to feed white tail deer. If I scatter Bonanza Fly bait where they eat it and will it harm the deer? The information says it can be used in feedlots but also says to keep it away from the animals.
If eaten in big enough quantities Bonanza Fly Bait can be harmful to deer or other animals. The Bonanza product label says that you can use the bait in a scatter application around the outside of the feedlot only. If you are using the product in a feedlot we recommend that you do not scatter the bait but instead use it in a fly bait station such as the FBS-1 station or the Apache bait station. This will keep the bait available to the flies but inaccessible to deer and other animals.
